Location: Tania Park, Bareena Drive, Balgowlah Heights

Remind yourself why we love Sydney. The views, the sweeping views (to Manly, the Heads, Watsons Bay, Balmoral, Middle Head etc) are just stunning at this sublime Summer Series location. Expect a distracting mix of cliff top and bush pathways, parks and houses all sporting lounge room telescopes! A Summer Series classic.

The Sydney Summer Series (also known as Sydney Map Running) challenges participants to navigate on the run (imagine running AND thinking!). It is the best summer orienteering in Sydney utilising the city’s parks, history, beaches, harbour and bush. All are on show in the even more action packed 29th Sydney Summer Series.
